Nashville, TN -- Country music singer-songwriter Alan Jackson will perform at Nashville’s Station Inn on August 27 at 8:30pm. The show will feature the players from Jackson’s upcoming The Bluegrass Album, set for release September 24. Jackson wrote eight of the fourteen songs on The Bluegrass Album, which will be released on ACR (Alan’s Country Records)/EMI Records Nashville and is produced by Keith Stegall and Jackson’s nephew, Adam Wright. A review of the album by Bob Cherry and is creating a great deal of excitement and a lot of anticipation for the new project.
Bluegrass artist Don Rigsby who performs on the The Bluegrass Album commented to us saying, "It is REAL bluegrass, not watered down in any way." That is exactly what we found. Fans will get an opportunity to hear what this album is all about August 27th at the Station Inn, a venue known for showcasing some of the finest acts in bluegrass music.
Jackson's superior songwriting talent comes through on the album and by bringing a host of top bluegrass musicians into the mix, Jackson achieved a true bluegrass sound. From Adam Steffey's mandolin to Rob Ickes Dobro and Sammy Shelor's banjo the combination rings true to a genre that often is intolerant of deviations. On The Bluegrass Album, the boundaries are definitely stretched but, in a way that even hard-core bluegrass fans will enjoy.
